you also miss the sense of where you are going and why." Eddie Cantor
I spent a lot of time thinking about and creating a small space that I could enjoy in my backyard. I had fun picking out the pillows and the chairs to make it bright and inviting. I found a painting I loved that matched the color of the small rug that I placed in just the right spot. I could picture myself sitting and reading and enjoying this spot all summer long. I enjoyed every minute of the process of creating this special place just for me. And today I realized that I wasn't using it. My mind has taken me to the next project, the next thing to do.
Luckily the summer has just begun and the window of opportunity to enjoy this space has not passed. As I sat there this morning reading and thinking I realized how lucky I was that I took a moment to realize what I was about to miss. It's too hot to use this space in the middle of the day but it's a perfect place to begin each morning and to end each day. I write all of the time about the importance of enjoying the process of creating. But as I reminded myself this morning it is also important to enjoy the completion of a project and not to just move on to the next thing.
What would you like to enjoy this week?
